20th Year Anniversary Season!

Fall Schedule Now Available Visit Schedule of Classes to register

The Academy opened it's doors in 1997 to a small group of summer camp students, since then, the school has grown, formed it's own company in residence, and produced dancers who have gone on to the most prestigious dance companies and college programs in the country.  With small class sizes and personalized instruction, the Academy is able to offer students the positive attention needed to reach their potential in dance as well as all aspects of their lives.    

The Russian method of teaching is taught at the Academy.  An emphasis on proper technique, style and confidence are  priorities at the Academy as opposed to competitions and medals. Classes are offered for children 3 and up as well as adults.  A wide range of dance disciplines are taught at the Academy including ballet, modern, jazz, tap, hip hop, variations, pas de deux, pointe and choreography development.

Directors Sandra Harris and Shari Bickel both share the vision of encouraging students to achieve their best through positive instruction and encouragement.  For those students who strive to dance professionally, the Academy features a performing company in residence which gives dancers who are serious about a career in dance an opportunity to perform in a professional environment.  As former professional dancers, the directors know what it takes to make it to the next level of dance, and enjoy guiding students to achieve their goals. WMBA is a family orientated school focused on communication, respect and self-motivation.          


        White Marsh Ballet Academy strives to foster a love of dance and the arts in young children.  This fall, introduce your child to dance for less.
